Re: [APD] Re: Quoth the Walrus to the Snark

Yes. It makes a diff also if the reader is getting things
in digest form or singly. In digetst form, threads aren't
to hard to trace. If you get the messages one at a time, it
often is helpful to have the prior post included.

Luckily, one things doesn't have to be exactly the same
thing for all people. Sanning past the
"oh-I-don't-need-to-see-that-again" stuff takes only
moments for most of us.

It's a bit like the issue of forums versus mail lists. And
also a matter of personal prefs.

Generally, there is one to two posts per month asking for
more excision, aggressive elision. I find those notes
redundant too, but I just scan them through ;-)
